Peak Season- Late Summer/ Fall
What This Means: due to the sunny weather and clear skies, a lot of work can be done and timing is on your side. The days are longer and the weather is good.
Something to think about peak season also means that there is a high demand for installers and materials which will come at a higher cost. High demand will mean the schedules are busier so it is good to schedule your appointment to sign a contract as early as possible to accommodate for any possible material delays and to secure your spot for installation at a time that works best for you.
Off Season- Early Spring/ Winter
During this time period, it is a great time to get a quote for you roof replacement and sign a contract. To get ahead of the Summer Rush, Spring time is a great window of opportunity to install a roof- as long as you understand that it is a weather permitting job.
Now when it comes to winter, there are other challenges to consider: snowfall and freezing temperatures make it difficult to work with asphalt shingle roofs, so it’s best install the roof above freezing temperatures. Temperatures below freezing cause roofing shingles to lose flexibility becoming difficult to cut as well as insert nails. Furthermore, some winters are particularly harsh and are prone to ice damming. We recommend looking at What Is Ice Damming? (And Why Does An Ice Shield Matter), to be well aware of the risks.
Although on the bright side, winter is a usually not a very busy time to schedule an appointment for a quote, so snagging those lower material cost prices might be a great deal! Again, make sure that the weather is above freezing if winter is your preferred season of choice.
